The new Andaluz, formerly the La Posada de Albuquerque Hotel, will reopen late this year in downtown Albuquerque, N.M., with a 73-panel solar thermal system from Novan Solar Inc. of Golden, Colorado, that will provide domestic hot water for the hotel.

The Novan system is part of the hotel's redevelopment by Albuquerque developer Gary Goodman, representing one of the first historic remodels in the U.S. to conform to the energy efficiency and sustainability standards of the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards.

The 4,000-gallon solar water heating system from Novan will generate nearly 10,000 therms (100 million BTUs) of energy yearly for the 107-roon hotel, which first opened in 1939.
